• I created columns A, B, and C.
  • I created a custom display form with SharePoint Designer 2013 that displays A, B, and C.
  • I renamed columns A, B, and C to X, Y, and Z, respectfully.


The columns still show as A, B, and C on the display form even though their column names are now X, Y, and Z.

I tried comparing my custom display form to the default display form, since the default display form automatically updates the column names, but the code is totally different.

How do I change my custom display form so it shows the "dynamic" column name (the external name I can arbitrarily change) rather than the "static" column name (the one that gets set when you first create a column)?

I'm guessing it's something similiar to the code below. I'm not looking for the value of it though, just the new name.

<xsl:value-of select="@A"/>
